Live Animals and Perishables Board (LAPB)

The Live Animals and Perishables Board develops regulations for the acceptance, handling and loading of live animals in air transport, compiled in the Live Animals Regulations (LAR) manual.

The LAPB also establishes guidelines for shipping time and temperature sensitive goods, focusing on adequate temperature management and efficient handling. These regulations are published in the IATA Perishable Cargo Regulations (PCR) manual.

The primary objectives of the LAPB include:

  • The adoption of regulations for the acceptance, handling and loading of live animals and perishables in air transport
  • The promotion of public awareness and government acceptance of the regulations
  • The provision of an open forum for member airlines to exchange and develop information specific to the transport of live animals and perishables
  • The promotion of an open dialogue with civil aviation authorities and shipping industry
Meetings

The LAPB normally meets twice a year.

Membership

The LAPB consists of up to 12 members appointed by the Cargo Services Conference (CSC), each being an expert in the live animals or perishables area.

The current LAPB Chairman is Mr. Bruce Clemmons (FedEx).
